§ MR. HOGAN
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the fact that the time allowed to the provisional contractors for the fast Atlantic service to satisfy the Government of the Dominion of Canada of their ability to carry out their proposals has now expired, he is in a position to afford any information on the subject?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES
I presume that the honourable Member refers to a provision in the supplemental contract by which the contractors agreed with the Canadian 962 Government that a company should be incorporated, and its capital subscribed before a certain date, which has now passed. I have received no information on the subject since that date.
